The $500,000 Stimulus Package meant to be delivered to individual player's in-game Grand Theft Auto Online accounts is going to have to wait a little longer. Rockstar Games announced Friday that the multiplayer portion of GTA V for the PS3 and Xbox 360 still needs some work.
"We know many of you are anxiously waiting for us to show you the GTA$ Stimulus Package money we announced a couple weeks back," Rockstar Games wrote in an update on its blog. "As mentioned in that post, we of course want to ensure that game progress loss issues are sufficiently sorted before distributing the GTA$ to everyone. We have a few more tweaks and fixes to make in a new title update that will hit sometime next week and then we will distribute the cash."
Rockstar released the 1.04 patch for GTA Online on Friday, Oct. 18 with the hope that the first $250,000 payment would be released this week. That obviously wasn't the case though as another patch is now needed following what has been an extremely rough launch.
